PMs

Postby Guns of Brixton » 07 Jul 2015, 11:16

I've noticed from time-to-time that when I send a PM (and it says 'message has been successfully sent') it appears in my Outbox but not in my Sent messages. I'm pretty sure it has been sent but not 100% sure and I don't want to bombard the person with a repeat PM. Anyone have insight on this?

If the recipient hasn't opened their inbox since the pm was sent, it's marked as being in the "Outbox"...as soon as they open their Inbox though, it will be marked as sent.

And if it has multiple recipients, it only needs one of them to open their inbox to change state.

Does the person need to open the message itself or just see that it is in their inbox?

They need to go to their inbox...they may not open the message.
